We went here for dinner and were so pleased with everything we came back the next day! The service was attentive as well (there is a 10% service charge on the bill, which the staff did point out to us). Their Caesar salad was delicious...and the dumpling soup was excellent! I also recommend the french onion soup and carbonara.More

First of all, the staff were so rude to me and my friends, it was a birthday dinner and this place completely ruined the fun vibe that we had at the start by their lies and strategies to get more money from us, firstly they...told us that if a lot of people ordered the same dish they would all get a discount individually, which of course never happened, when the food arrived we were all amused by how ridiculously small the portions were. Just to top all of this after eating when we asked for the bill they kept adding money that was never there and made us pay 16 more euros that we never had to pay initially. We were told it was impossible to share dishes but the table right next to us was sharing a pizza?? Also we were told the bill couldn’t be split but then told us we could do it in two rounds; If you’re going to do it in to rounds you might as well just split it for everyone. I will never come back here.More

Great underhyped spot In Krakow. Competitive prices and fantastic attentive staff. I ordered the lasagne and a couple of cocktails and this was brought to me incredibly quickly and was my most memorable dish of my week and a gorgeous cocktail. 100% recommend.

My daughter and I had dinner here on our first evening in the city. We sat in the heated outdoor area so had a great view of the beautifully lit up square. As well as pizza and pasta, there was a range of meat and...fish dishes. We had no problem finding vegetarian choices which can be difficult in many European cities.

We booked the Winter Garden for New Years Eve. We paid £80 gbp pp for 5 taster courses and a bottle of prosecco. I must mention the staff who worked so hard to give us a lovely evening, they were very friendly and efficient. The...food was delicious and was delivered at timely intervals so we were eating something from the time we arrived until 15 minutes to midnight. I was pretty full towards the end ! The two things that let this event down were the toilets which were inside a club. It was pretty daunting pushing your way through people especially after being challenged by a rather gruff bouncer as to whether you could use the toilet despite flashing the wristband we had been given. The other was the music. In my opinion we were all of a certain demographic, middle aged to senior, clearly out for a quiet evening of food and some drinks but the music was very different to that, dance music etc. now and again the speaker would go off and for a moment it was beautiful again. Lastly our table was in front of the door and I completely appreciated they needed to be open for service to happen but this meant it was pretty chilly a lot of the time, maybe don’t seat anyone there? We had a lovely evening despite the above, I probably wouldn’t do it again though.More

Give this restaurant a wide berth, plenty of other restaurants to choose from. My daughter ordered the fillet steak with a mushroom sauce which was an added extra, along with the fries which were also extra. When it arrived it was on a sizzling platter,...not once were we asked how we wanted the steak cooking. By the time, my daughter had started to cook the steak, I had already eaten my lasagne, and the side orders had subsequently gone cold. We sent it back. They brought the same piece of steak back we know this as my daughter had cut the end off. She then had to wait for more fries to be cooked making the steak cold. At this point we had had enough and I said I would pay for what I’d had but refused to pay for the uneaten steak. If the restaurant had of been busy the error could of been forgiven but we were the ONLY two in the restaurant. They wanted us to pay for the steak. We asked for the manager who wouldn’t come, but communicated through the waitress. In the end they made us pay for the mushroom sauce which wasn’t eaten just so we could get out of the restaurant along with the cold chips and potatoes which we never ate. Definitely a place I would NOT recommend.More

The pizzas were nice. However, the ravioli with gorgonzola was bland as was my friends pasta with gorgonzola. She complained and we were not charged for it which was good, but she was disappointed. The garlic bread was not very garlicky at all. Even the...parmesan was lacking in flavour. The wine was fine although the waitress tried to persuade us to choose a more expensive one.

We had an early dinner at this restaurant in a prime location at Rynek Glowny, Krakow's wonderful market square. We chose this place above others around the square because they had a few more vegetarian options. It was quite busy, but it's a big place,...so tables became available all the time. We chose to sit outdoors with a great view of the comings and goings on the square. We both started with soups, a tomato and an onion one. We then shared a rather big vegetable pizza, with was quite tasty. The food we had was fine but not gourmet, we didn't actually expect that in a place that deals with masses of passing tourists. Our half litre carafe of red wine was better than hoped for and enjoyable. Service was acceptable. We dealt with several servers, some were very helpful and managed to smile while others were a bit weary - they were rather run off their feet, admittedly. They were happy to let us linger over our wine which was a positive point. They do include a 10pc service charge. Our total bill was PLN165, which seemed to be about average.More

An interesting experience. Comprehensive menu and tbh the food was not bad. The whole experience however was destroyed when my companion asked for a glass of tap water (to accompany his mojito). He was told he had to pay for water, and explained that he...just needed a glass of plain water. “Not possible” was the gruff response, despite is having a £60+ order of food and drinks. On requesting to see the manager, my friend was told that he was not on the premises, so he went into the building to find him cowering behind the desk. In his cowardly way he hid behind the “I’d love to give you water, but it’s not my policy” line. Will avoid this place when I am back next month. If they think they protect revenue by not offrring a glass of tap water (common practice throughout Europe), they should think again. Food was ok, but nothing to write home about and soured by the atmosphere. Half expected to be charged to use the loo!More
